February wasn’t a large reading month, but I did get around to a few books! All of them were really good books, and I can’t wait to talk about them.
#1. Witchshadow by Susan Dennard, 5 stars (To be published in June 2021)
My eternal thanks to Kailey at In The Land of Pages , A fellow Barnes & Noble bookseller, for telling me that I can tell Edelweiss that I’m a bookseller and they can automatically approve me for over half of the Edelweiss library, including my most anticipated book of 2021, WITCHSHADOW, THE 4TH BOOK IN THE WITCHLANDS, ISEULT’S BOOK! Unsurprisingly, this book was knocked out of the park, 5/5 stars, will definitely be rereading this bad boy so I can give a more comprehensive review.
#2. Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds, 3 stars (published 2019)
My first foray into Jason Reynolds’ books, and it was such a good one! I’m excited to finally read his other works, and I can’t wait to see what he writes next! You can read my full review here.
#3. Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo, 3.5 stars (published 2020)
This was the first book I’ve read that was written in prose, and it was definitely an interesting take on the traditional novel. I don’t know if I was a big fan of it, but it was a good story and I’m really eager to read Elizabeth Acevedo’s book With The Fire On High! Thanks so much to Kate at @liftweightskate on Twitter for getting this for me for the #TBTBSANTA exchange!
#4. A Very Punchable Face by Colin Jost, 4 stars (published 2021)
As a general rule, I usually don’t listen to audiobooks, but I’ve been trying to get into them a bit more so when I saw this on Libby to borrow, I decided why not? Colin Jost narrated his book, and it made listening to it feel very real. It was a fun insight into his life, childhood, and time at SNL. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Colin Jost on Weekend Update, or anyone in the mood for a good laugh from a good memoir/autobiography! (there’s even a few extras thrown in for audiobook listeners, although he does stress that you should buy the physical copy of the book so you can look at the pictures throughout the book)
It wasn’t a huge reading month for me, but given that I was balancing work, home, and my own addiction to Animal Crossing, I’m pretty pleased with what I did end up reading!
Have you read any of these? What did you think? And are you as excited for Witchshadow as I am?!?
